Category Description for RightStart Mathematics 2nd Edition:

RightStart uses a hands-on approach to help children understand, apply, and enjoy math. Synonymous with quality math, this 2nd edition is no exception. A complete rewrite, this edition employs recent research and includes more manipulatives. Based on studies comparing the differences between Japanese and US first grades, the 2nd edition incorporates certain aspects from Asian programs such as non-counting strategies and alternative number naming. RightStart teaches students to see quantities in groups of fives and tens. When adding 9 + 7, instead of counting 7 up from 9, you would take 1 from 7 to make 10 and 6. This program also uses a unique number naming system. Asian words for numbers 10 and greater implicitly relate the base ten system. Literally translated, eleven is "ten-one," twelve is "ten-two," etc. RightStart students learn to count this "math-way" before learning less intuitive words such as 11 or 19. The AL Abacus is the primary learning tool and helps children visualize numbers in groups of 5 and 10.

RightStart offers an easier-to-teach lesson format. Daily Lessons take 30 to 40 minutes with Objectives and Materials listed in the heading area of each lesson. Below that, the page is divided into two columns. Activities for Teaching are listed in the left column and include the Warm-Up (quick review) and instructions for teaching the lesson and new concept. Background and teacher explanations provide additional information in the right column. This information is accompanied by helpful illustrations where needed. Worksheets provide an opportunity for children to practice the days lesson, and at the lower levels, there may not be a worksheet for every lesson. Lessons are typically done in one day and each level is one complete school year. If you are unsure of the level at which you should begin, a placement questionnaire is available.

The Math Card Games Book is the source for games played within the lessons. Games can be used as many times as needed for proficiency. Special decks of cards are used with the book and both the book and decks are included in the manipulative kit for the 2nd edition. This book and decks are also sold separately and can be used to accompany other math programs. Math games help children learn the basics and increase proficiency.

Each level of the 2nd edition uses most of the same manipulatives used previously, with some additions; however, the sequence and use may change. As a result, there is now one manipulative kit that has everything you need for Levels A-F of the program. The set includes an AL abacus, Math Card Games book, place value cards, AL abacus tiles, folding meter stick, geoboards, colored 1" tiles, Casio calculator, tangrams, base ten picture cards, tally sticks, geared clock, six card decks, two fraction charts, drawing set, 4-in-1 Ruler, Goniometer, coins, geometry reflector, centimeter cubes, math balance, RightStart geometry panels, geometric solids, Yellow is the Sun CD, and dry erase pen. Buy this one kit when you start the program and youre set to go.

If you already have some of the manipulatives found in the 2nd edition kit, items can be purchased separately, or there are add-on kits available for levels A and B. The bridge kits will allow you to get the manipulatives you need without overlap.

Book bundles for levels A and B include a lesson book, worksheets, a Yellow is the Sun book, and appendix pages for that level. Level C includes the lesson book and worksheets. Level D through H bundles include lesson book, worksheets, and appendix pages. Levels B, C, D, E, and F include review lessons for children who are new to the RightStart program. Level G requires no prior work with the RightStart curriculum. Level G of RightStart Math is an applied math that is designed to be more independent than previous levels of RightStart Math. Level G is a middle school curriculum that includes perimeter, area, volume, metric system, decimals, rounding numbers, ratio, proportion, parallel lines, angles, midpoints, triangle congruence, Pythagorean theorem, golden ratio, Fibonacci numbers, tessellations, Pick’s theorem, and fractals. The bundle at this level includes 3 books: worksheets, lessons, and solutions manual. The student worksheets can also be purchased separately. Level H can be done independently and is a continuation of the topics found in Level G. The appendix pages included in the bundle are the same appendix pages found in the back of the lesson book, but they are already copied for your convenience - some printed on heavier cardstock, and some printed multiple times in to meet the requirements of the lessons.

I can't summarize this program better than the creator, so let me quote from the manual:

"There are ten major characteristics.

1. Refers to quantities of up to 5 as a group; discourages counting individually.

2. Avoids counting procedures for finding sums and remainders.

3. Employs games, not flash cards, for practice.

4. Once quantities 1 to 10 are known, proceeds to 10 as a unit. Uses the "math way" of counting; say for example, 1-ten 1 for eleven, 1-ten 2 for twelve, 2-ten for twenty, and 2-ten 5 for twenty-five.

5. Uses expanded notation (overlapping) place-value cards for recording 10s and 1s

6. Proceeds rapidly to hundreds and thousands; uses manipulatives and place-value cards. Provides opportunities for trading between ones and tens, tens and hundreds, and hundreds and thousands with manipulatives.

7. Teaches mental computation and investigates informal solutions before learning procedures.

8. Teaches four-digit addition and subtraction on the abacus; let the children discover the paper and pencil algorithms.

9. Introduces fractions with a linear visual model and includes all fractions from to 1/10.

10. Teaches short division for single-digit divisors, before long division."

Category Description for RightStart Mathematics:

Based on research comparing the differences between Japanese first grades and first grade classrooms in the U.S., this curriculum incorporates certain aspects from Asian math programs such as non-counting strategies and, for us, an alternative number naming system. In this program, the student is taught to see quantities in groups of fives and tens. When asked to add 9 + 7, instead of counting 7 up from 9, you would take 1 from 7 to make 10 and 6. This program also uses a unique number naming system. Asian words for numbers greater than 10 implicitly give you a feel for the base ten system. Literally translated, eleven is "ten-one," twelve is "ten-two," and so on. RightStart students learn to count the "math-way" before they are taught the less intuitive words for 11 to 19.

I cant summarize this program better than the creator, so let me quote from the manual:

"There are eleven major characteristics.

1. Refer to quantities of up to 3 as a group; do not count individually.

2. Use fingers to show quantities up to 10; teach 6 to 10 as 5 plus a quantity.

3. Avoid counting procedures for finding sums and remainders.

4. Once quantities 1 to 10 are known, proceed to 10 as a unit. Use the "math way" of counting; say for example, 1-ten 1 for eleven, 1-ten 2 for twelve, 2-ten for twenty, and 2-ten 5 for twenty-five.

5. Use expanded notation (overlapping) place-value cards for recording 10s and 1s

6. Proceed rapidly to hundreds and thousands; use place-value cards. Provide opportunities for trading between ones and tens, tens and hundreds, and hundreds and thousands with manipulatives.

7. Only after the above work, give the traditional English names for quantities 20 to 99 and then 11 to 19.

8. Teach tens-based strategies for addition and subtraction facts that have a sum > 10. Teach informal solutions and mental computation before written algorithmic work.

10. Teach four-digit addition and subtraction on the abacus; let the children discover the paper and pencil algorithms.

11. Short division precedes long division, which is taught in fourth grade."

In Level G, students continue to practice arithmetic, fractions and decimals, while they begin to also explore triangles, area, volume, ratios, Pythagorean Theorem, tiling, and other new concepts.

great reviews, suitable for my kinesthetic learner!

How accurate is the placement test? My child will be entering 2nd grade. The placement test recommends level B, but when I look at the topics covered in level B, we have already done all of them in 1st grade. Should I trust the placement test or move on to Level C?
on Jul 15, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I found level B to work well with my 2nd grader. He knew a lot but not the right start way of solving the problems. He also learned how to add multidigit numbers to each other in his head. I just went rapidly through the things that were super easy and began level C in the spring.
Is this intended for 1st grade?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I utilized Level B for 1st grade, into 2nd grade. I am now using Level C for 2nd grade into 3rd grade. I believe you can also use resources on the RightStart website to determine which level your child needs to start at. Which is why the levels are not labeled grade specific.
Hello, I have the previous edition and am wondering if I should upgrade to the 2nd edition. Would someone be able to tell me how the 2nd edition has changed from the first?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I only started with the 2nd edition, so I don't know about workbook content differing from one edition to the next. I did notice there seems to be a difference in ordering the manipulatives, though. Where you order in the first edition the manipulatives just for that level, I ordered one box for all the levels. I think the 2nd edition maybe streamlined that process?
Jennifer, did you find that your child was well prepared to go into RightStart level B without having used RightStart Level A first?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2016
Hello, I have a Kindergartner and a 3rd grader. I'm looking into Right Start..Is there a bundle that I can use for both of them? Also does the bundle include the manipulatives?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There wouldn't be a bundle with K and 3rd but you could buy the RightStart Math Set, 2nd Ed. which has all the manipulatives for K-7 and then buy the book bundles for the different grade levels (level A and level D). We love RightStart math. My 1st grader asks me to play math games with her! It is an upfront investment but one that I would say is definitely worth it! It teaches in a way that is natural and helps the student progress more easily than with other curriculum.

PUT VERY WELL TOGETHER!! WE LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
This book is put very well together. Its very easy for the parent to follow and teach from it, it explains so student can understand it easily while at the same time in 1 school year you go about 1¾ of a grade. Very fast paced book but very easy and comfortable too. There is not alot of worksheets, not for everyday. There are lots of activities that come with it that helps the student understand better. For us a lesson usually takes about 15 minutes, max 20 minutes. I LOVE IT AND MY CHILD DOES TOO.

Terrific Product
I turned to this for our 1st Grade math curriculum. After two months of using it, I am so impressed with the program. I feel like my child is actually learning math, not just doing worksheets. My child loves learning through the games and actually asks to play them during family game night. I love how the lesson plans are laid out. You know exactly what to prepare for the following day. Highly recommended for kids who like interaction and not too much writing. I wish we had used it in Kindergarten as well.

Kids love it, high parental involvement
My 5 and 7 year olds are learning a lot with this program, they willingly play the card games together all the time which is really boosting their retention of the math facts. There is very little writing involved which is a plus if your student struggles with writing, however that means the parent/teacher is fully engaged for the entire lesson with oral question and answer and instruction with the manipulatives. As of now I will definitely stick with it.
